@Andrew_Krammer As Taylor Heinicke deals with mild concussion and oblique strain, #Vikings could call Leidner back in p-squad search

Yup. When you claim someone off waivers they have to be put on active roster.

Yup. I mean they can be cut or moved to IR or whatever like any other player I guess.

I think I agree, though it's a little surprising Eric Wilson wasn't on there. Maybe over Gedeon.

(RotoWire) Hodges (head) was waived by the Vikings off injured reserve Tuesday after both sides reached an injury settlement, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

@christomasson
19m
Not practicing for #Vikings was LB Anthony Barr Was in sweats and hoodie Unclear what his injury is but we'll find out when report comes out

Lamur filled in for Barr at strong-side linebacker.
Barr injured would hurt us at the linebacker position. I feel we're not that strong there anyway.

Barr out with a hamstring.

Elijah Lee signed to 49ers.

Brock (groin) said he'll be out there Sunday.

Of course. See my avatar. Makes perfect sense.
